Do you know if this conference is presented at a level that will benefit someone like myself, who doesn't have the super-technical background as to my kidney cancer?

I'm fairly certain that since the public is encouraged to attend, this conference is going to be less 'technical' and more practical - at least in the way the information is presented. But this is just a guess.

I attended a similarly titled event last month in Los Angeles.  It was targeted for non-physicians like us. It was not overly technical. I would expect it to be helpful.

My husband went to the one in Los Angeles also presented by the Kidney Cancer Association and we were very very glad we went. It was actually a very positive experience and the information was simplified for patients and survivors, I was pleased with the quality of the speakers in the information.
